Ruffled Halter

On the Oliver + S website there are several free patterns to download.  Today I decided to make this one called Ruffled Halter. Download it here.

The fabric is raised dot voile and it's sized to fit 3/4.  It was really easy and quick to make. The hard part is getting a decent photo.

Maybe this is a better angle and better lighting?

The neck strap ties at the back and there is elastic around the back bodice. 
On the hems of the ruffles, I serged using the rolled hem technique and because I didn't have the correct colour of cotton thread, I had to use several shades of rayon thread. 

Perhaps this is better photo? Maybe not. The Day Lilies look good though because the deer haven't eaten them yet.
At any rate, this top ought to be light and cool for the hot and humid dog days we're experiencing right now.

Now it's time for lunch, afterwards a quick swim and then back to the sewing room!
